* In the first ''SuicideSquad'' series, Shade the Changing Man told about an incredibly confusing conspiracy that was going on in his home dimension. When Shade and the Squad confronted the conspirators on Earth, one of the Squad members asked what to do when the police arrived. Shade replied to tell the police the truth and they will brush it off as a delusional fantasy.

** Not to mention Matt Striker showed up on both WWESmackDown and Wrestling/WWESuperstars during the time he was supposed to be kidnapped and no one seemed to realize it or wonder how he kept being kidnapped.

According to TheOtherWiki, the term was "coined by the CIA in the early 1960s to describe the withholding of information from senior officials in order to protect them from repercussions in the event that illegal or unpopular activities by the CIA became public knowledge." The scope of the term has broadened since then.

** Cerberus' official stance on anything that makes them look bad to Shepard (usually [[PlayingWithSyringes highly unethical projects]] that [[GoneHorriblyWrong backfired horribly]]) is to declare them "Rogue Cells".

The center that trained/created Jack at least is explicitly said to be hiding ''something'' from the Illusive Man aware that he wouldn't approve of it, but we never learn exactly what.

*** The largest human ship is 200m long, in high orbit and no solar panels to reflect light. You wont see it. The closest in RL is ISS with its solar panels to reflect light and ISS is visible 2-5 minutes a day if you know where to look.

* Subverted big time in ''KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'': no one will let Hazumu keep anything a secret even though early on she tries. The aliens announce what they did to her, and when she tries to hide Jan-puu the next morning she goes downstairs to discover her friend having breakfast with her parents.

* The ''{{Transformers}}'' series of various stripes tend to use this a lot. Especially ''[[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise Robots In Disguise]]'', where one character is pretty sure she's going insane simply because all these strange things she seems to wind up in the middle of can't ''possibly'' be happening.

* A literal application of plausible deniability was used in ''MyNameIsEarl'', when Earl meets the president of Winky-Dinky Dogs and tells him one of his subordinates burned down a competitor's hot dog stand. His response was 'Actually, I don't want to know about it. Business is tough, son. You try to play by the rules, but sometimes you can't. And when you can't, I'd rather be able to stand up in court and say I didn't know about it'.
